That's the consensus term for it as far as I know (quite a few of these multiple permanent baskets on each hole courses here in the northeast). Black ace is landing in a basket on another fairway. ...

Hole 12 blue basket isn't really in the approach to the gold unless you're well up the hill to the right, which isn't necessarily the best way to play it. If you've taken more of a straight line...

When you say build trust in a disc, do you mean a specific disc or a specific mold? Because McBeth doesn't really rely on specific discs. By which I mean he may be throwing a Force in every...
